Okay, it may only be a week into January, but it’s safe to say anyone who’s braving the cold winter weather is probably looking forward to the warmer days of spring that lie ahead — and they’re not alone. Retailers everywhere have been releasing some of the upcoming year’s biggest trends with their new spring 2019 arrivals, giving you an ample amount of reasoning to start shopping for a (albeit slightly) warmer climate. Though spring doesn’t officially arrive for another couple of months, it’s never too early to stock your closet with pieces you’ll wear from now into 2020.
With every new year (and season) there are a new set of trends to consider; not to mention, the ones from the past year that you loved so much that have come back for another round. If you’re a fashion lover who likes to stay ahead of the trends and keep a pulse on the pieces you’ll see in a mere matter of weeks, the new arrivals section of any retailer will give you a helpful hint.
Just in case you’re not sure where to start, there are few key trends that stand out as ones you won’t want to pass up.
